. >> deserving or not senate majority leader harry reid who enjoys a "b" rating from the nra seems to have decideed already which of the president's proposals have the best chance to become law. reid indicated on the abcs "this week" that at least two of those proposals had a chance. >> i think we need to take a look at the federal trafficking i think that everyone acknowledges that we should do something about background checks. >> john: but sought weapons? >> i'll take a look at it. >> john: someone is working on their "a" rating from the nra. and the majority leader seemed less interested in a ten-round limit for ammunition clips. >> i think that's something that we definitely have to take a look at. >> take a look or vote for? >> well, let's see what it is. let's see what it is. >> john: in case someone in the senate doesn't know what it is. what it is or seems to be the democratic senate leader running for cover when pressed to do something about guns. on two other big issues reid seems employeer confident that an immigration bill would pass, and the majority leader also told abc that
murdered-opolis. today, minneapolis mayor r.t. ryeback had strong words for harry reid who would not commit to supporting an asaumt weapons ban. >> i didn't vote for it last night because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> how can harry reid, a fellow democrat and i'm willing to criticize him say he hasn't read the bill. mayor dianne feinstein has been a mayor. she's been in a shooting. she knows why she needs this. let's support the president and get some things done. >> however, momentum does seem to be building behindmost of the president's proposals. "wall street journal" saying the senate democrats include a bill limiting magazine clips and universal background checks despite continuing opposition of the nra. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it is never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. >>> and factor this one in. an ad by mayors against illegal guns ran during the super bowl. it pointed out that the nra once supported closing the so-called gun show loophole. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> w
't think you can trust -- >> senate majority leader harry reid says he hopes gun legislation will come out of the judiciary committee but he was noncommittal over whether he would sign an assault weapons ban. >> would you vote for it? >> frankly, she knows, i haven't read her amendment, i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> i will bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and senior staff writer for "the hill" alex bolton. good monday morning to both of you. ruth, this is the president's first big sell to the american people. what do you think he needs to say here? >> well, the president said he was going to give it everything he's got. i think what he needs to say is look, don't listen to the nra, listen to logic or listen to the nra from a number of years ago when it supported universal background checks. i think that there are three issues here in order of likelihood. one is background checks which has huge support and makes complete sense. one is limits on magazine sizes which i completely think the administra

that there is a director of the atf might solve a little bit of that problem. let's move on to harry reid because harry reid has been asked about gun patrol. control. he has been asked by george stephanopoulos. and here's what he had to say about it. >> would you vote for it? >> i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> now here is the important thing to remember about harry reid. he's facing a little bit of a conundrum because there is what is good for the country and what his constituents in nevada wants. and of course in nevada they're very much pro gun. and he is very much pro gun himself. it is very unlikely that he's well to support an assault weapons ban. but he was also talking about background checks. let's hear what he said about that. >> everyone acknowledged that we should have universal background checks. i support the second amendment but you can do things like that. >> michael, what are your thoughts. do you think harry reid will take the lead on gun control? >> i don't think he'll take the lead, but he's the smartest poli
everybody this is at the feet of harry reid in the senate right now to move on this, and he appeared this weekend with abc's george stephanopoulos. take a listen to his thoughts. >> how about restrictions on high capacity magazines for ammunition? >> i think that's something we definitely have to take a look at. >> take a look or vote for? >> let's see what it is. >> sir, in your opinion, do you think that right now the best approach is going to be agreement on both sides of the aisle on small steps and that small step being potential for universal background checks as opposed to talking about the assault style weapons ban and magazine clips? >> well, first, i want to give president obama high marks for continuing to make gun control a top priority of his administration, especially so early on. whenever you talk about gun-related issues, it gets my attention. i was a 16-year-old police cadet when i was in the police locker room one afternoon getting ready to go on my shift and a police officer's gun accidentally went off and the bullet went through my neck and severed my spinal cord.
as assault weapons, may be unrealistic. this is according to a reid aide. again, i get back to harry reid really being the key point person to be able to take through feinstein's newly introduced bill and any other type of measures that the president would like to see put through the senate first. do you think, though, that harry reid being a pro-gun democrat, is the best person to helm this through the senate side? >> you were just talking about members of the house and senate in a vacuum, some of that may be true but i believe the president's strategy is the right one by going right to the american people and making the case that we need universal background checks eliminating the loopholes at gun shows that don't require background checks, going to the american people, talking about an assault weapons ban and also banning high capacity magazines, in an effort to continue to raise awareness, i'm sure the president will talk about this in the state of the union and to help build momentum, i'm organizing an effort with my colleagues, asking members of congress and the house anyway, to giv

this a news alert. senator harry reid calling for more tax increases. in an interview on abc yesterday, he said tax revenue must be part of any deal to be part of the little defense cuts. here is senator reid. >> the american people are on our side, and america people don't believe in these things. we believe the rich should contribute. stuart: relieve the rich should contribute, tax the rich. president obama pushing for more tax increases yesterday. in an interview on cbs before the super bowl he said there is no doubt that government needs new relation. he promises strong economic growth this year coming on the heels of an economic contraction in the fourth quarter along with the rise in the unemployment rate. and everybody's taxes already went up as of january 1, taxes may go up some more. from taxes to the market. the dow above 14,000 for the first time since 2007 friday afternoon. let's bring in nicole. it is not like it was going to hold at 14,000, now futures are down, how much are they down? nicole: you can see the down arrows, 69 points pulling back awfully 14,000 mark. traders ar
for joining us. >> if you a ask harry reid, americans don't believe in spending cuts. >> the american people are on our side. the american people don't believe in this austere things. >> my next guest says harry has it wrong and has the polls to prove it. says mounting debt is major concern for most americans. tell us about it, sir. the polls would say that harry has it all wrong, do they not? >> they do. and also when you were discussing the president, as you know hi is talking about gun control and talking about immigration but it is debt now, and the deficit, that are the number two item in several recent polls of public concern. so they have shifted their attention, maybe past the philosophy -- fiscal cliff debate got their attention but now they're worried about it. recent polls show if you give people a choice between spending cuts, including cutting services, or tax increases, they prefer spending cuts. so, harry reid has is wrong. >> we just put a full screen up there cutting services 49%. some people say that. increasing taxes, 80%. both equally, only 11. people are interesting in
. harry reid wants to go after oil and gas companies and lord knows what. that kind of tax carpet bombing would generate a correction in the market. the market absorbed the last tax hike okay. but we don't want to push our luck, it seems to me. >> i think we're pushing our luck already. the market has yet to wake up to the reality of the last tax hike. the problem is obama puts the threats out because this is his way of premeg nating with republicans who are going to come to him in the debate about the sequesters and continuing resolution. obama is saying, don't even talk to me about entitlement reforms. if you oh mention those words it will be tax, tax, tax. i will control the public dialogue and that's all we'll e talk about. guys, fold your cards now. that's what this is about. i don't think there will be more tax hikes this year. there's also not going to be spending reform. all the talk about tax hikes is obama's way of making sure that america doesn't deal with its true problem which is its spending problem. >> i will cross that bridge when i get to it. dave goldman, this didn't hav
they have been very silent on this issue in terms of where they are going. harry reid, look at the number of democrats up for re-election. the president has to get his own party's house in order before they can proceed to get a political victory. >> interesting. speaking of harry reid, i want to play a clip from him. he's asked if he would vote for dianne feinstein's plan. >> i didn't vote for assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense. i'll take a look at it. >> restrictions on high capacity magazines? >> i think it's something we have to look at. >> take a look or vote for? >> let's see what it is. i have been supported by the nra on occasion. i know wayne lapierre. he's been extremely pleasant with me. we have a good relationship. i am not here to demean the organization. >> if the democratic senate majority cannot give a full support, how will it pass in. >> a couple things. harry reid along with a number of democrats and republicans, and there are plenty of republican that is have been quiet on this as well. politically speaking, they are taking a step back, waiting to le
, there is a stion,s are more inclined to compromise and i've heard senator harry reid's feet to the fire on this whole budget business because unless he puts a budget on the table, there can't begin to be a discussion to compromise. so, you know, he should call up senator harry reid and tell him to start compromising. >> the president said that for a long time. that he and the democrats are more willing to compromise than the republicans, but somehow the compromise doesn't happen. >> and i heard you got locked out of your house today? >> i'm locked in. >> and a little fact known about byron york, locked out of his house today. >> i played lock smith, i'm back in. >> good to know. thank you, byron. we think that hell just froze over, bipartisanship on capitol hill, a group of eight senators, republicans and democrats, proposing a new wide ranging plan for immigration reform. one of those senators, senator lindsey graham joins us. good evening, sir. are we going to get bipartisan immigration reform. >> there will be no immigration reform unless it's bipartisan. if you want to talk about th
to settle on passing background legislation and calling that a win. on abc over the weekend, harry reid pointedly would not commit to supporting an assault weapons ban. >> i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. i think everyone acknowledges we should do some background checks. >> reid said the senate would move the bill through the judiciary committee, it's unlikely to include a gun ban. though reid has said california senator dianne feinstein will have an opportunity to present the provision as an amendment once the bill reaches the senate floor. remember there's a whole bunch of red tape democrats want to actively cascade a vote against the assault weapons ban so they can show they are pro-gun. >> the super bowl ad new york city mayor's group ran in the d.c. market focused on one part of the gun control bills and that's the background check, one pointing out the nra at one time supported closing the gun show loophole. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory, instant criminal background checks for every sale at
, a relatively new blogger on the basis of a 16-year-old. >> there's people who support him. listen to harry reid. >> i have the utmost confidence in him. as to the rest of the investigation, that will have to be handled the way they are, in-depth. the ethics committee are looking at it. >> there's relatively serious allegations. are you confident he did nothing wrong? >> i have confidence he did nothing wrong but that's what investigation are about. >> later on, if it turns out the investigation turns out to say the allegations are true, he can say i did have confidence and i had every reason to be and i'm so disappointed. >> even rolling footage of harry reid. he's the senate majority leader but he said i had on good information mitt romney did. >> are you rolling tape about prostitutes. >>> does harry reid understand what menendez is accused of? looks like the last dalliance might have been during the true man administration. >> he's also from nevada. >> what do you mean by that? >> did it bother you -- >> the question is, is it legal in the united states. >> thank you for that. >> life would
passed? >> well, first of all, he needs to call harry reid in to his office and say get with the program, pal. i mean, harry reid not to use a bad analogy but sort of shot it down. and harry reid comes from a gun state, comes from that background. he's been hit or miss on this in the past. if you don't have strong support from the leaders of the democrats in congress, how do you expect to get anything sweeping enacted? talking to people today, even the whole notion of expanding background checks and making them universal, the phrase universal background checks has now become a word of fear and a term of art among conservatives and the gun supporters who fear it's about registering, if you sell your something to the guy across the road that that's going to be require registry and you get the black helicopters flying within seconds there. i'm not even sure that in the end is going to get enacted. it is a sad, sad commentary on where this issue is. it's the ultimate conflict between targeted inside money power and the presumed views of all the american people. 90% of the american people in
a nationwide gun registry, but there are positive signs for majority leader in the senate harry reid and from judiciary chair pat leahy. when it comes to assault ban doing away with assault bans, that doesn't seem to be in very good shape. vice president biden who led the discussion says his major priority is clips and magazines limiting the amount of each. that, too is not very favorable. so when you talk about the whole gamut, it seems that background checks and especially that loophole in gun shows stands the best chance. >> is it lost on anyone in this debate that a background check wouldn't have stopped newtown? the kid got his guns from his mom. >> well, people feel that, of course, there will be exceptions, but as the president said and i think rightly so, that if they can cut in any way the chances of something happening, it's never going to be 100% foolproof. they're going to try to make an attempt. they want to produce some legislation, brian, that changes the dynamic. >> now is senate majority leader harry reid from a pro gun state going to be an effective leader on this? >> well,
it the wrong way. >> you live by the sword and you die by the sword. harry reid started this. >> starsted what? >> thatismerary -- tempory process. it is the risk they run when they play these kinds of gamings. >> not a usual position for rick. now to eric with what is coming up on cashin? >> wait until you hear the new excuse for spending taking hold in washington. cash in is on in the bottom of the hour. >> first on forbes. did you ever want to know what your coworkers make? many companies are clicking and letting you find out. some on the forbes' group are saying show me the >> private sector salaries not so private. growing number of companies are releasing how much employees are making. co-workers say it is too much information and morgan, you say no problem, explain. >> it is great for business whether it workings or not and represents innovation in the workplace it is good as far as the as a result quality of pay and we have elements of this in the workplace. they have to disclose their salaries and see it with publicly traileded companies that disclose their. i don't think it is it a n
aid to majority leader harry reid told the "wall street journal" that the bill will not include a ban on military style weapons. members continue to vilify efforts at increasing gun safety in a way that only they can. >> they demonize people who are legal gun owners and obama, oh, look at hem. he cares about the children. screw you. you think we don't care about the children? you're the one who won't do anything about the mentally ill. >> 99.99% of the gun owners of america are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. would you leave us the hell alone? go after the nut jobs. go after the murderers because i don't know any. >> joy, let's talk about this. when you lead in with ted nugent and ann coulter -- >> doesn't get much better. >> always so much to talk about. insofar as we need to come together to get anything enacted. it does seem like the republican party or those in the conservative wing of the republican party have dug their heels in in a firm fashion. >> right. >> gin that, what did you make of the president's, we'll call it, push on the assault weapons
at some level in this country. >> senate majority reader harry reid could be a chief leader on gun debate. -- also on capitol hill chuck hagel looks to the numbers he needs to as the newmation secretary of defense. republican committee challenged the onetime colleague. he faced opposition from his friend and former political allies. >> he said the surge would be dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. we are incorrect or correct? >> my reference to -- question, senator hagel. when john mccain and in 20008, he admitted hagel would have made a great addition to his cabinet. is not a sentiment he carried over. theon the side of recovery, over 157,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate rose to 7.9% in december. some good news -- some good economy, the dow jones industrial average is up to date. is the first time since of 2007 it broke 14,000. year the best start to any of dating back to 1994. two days awayt from the raven's facing the 40 in super bowl xlvii. where espnce is live has set up the ultimate football experience. week i have worn a masquerade mask. is a l

, the senate majority leader, harry reid attacked it on tuesday. >> everyone has to look at the source where it comes from. a source that has brought up a lot of non-issues. i've told you how i feel about the source of this stuff. and it's really, very very typical for the source. >> bill: now, all fair minded americans will presume that senator menendez is innocent until proven guilty of any allegations, but in general, exploiting children is the worst possible scenario for any politician, and the evidence shows that he did not disclose about the jet trips, but that's a trifle compared to the under age always. they held it back for some time. but now, the story has advanced far beyond the rumor stage, and as an american, i hope that he had nothing to do with exploiting children, i hope. fox's news hour with laura ingram, and how do you read this. >> well, if the allegations are true, he's going to have to step down. >> bill: he'll go to prison. >> yes, we're talking about politics for a moment. and harry reid, i understand that he wants to write off anything that the daily caller is saying,
, we're talking about politics for a moment. and harry reid, i understand that he wants to write off anything that the daily caller is saying, and they backed off everything said for the day, but basically, they're punching on anything said before senator menendez. when you're a public official and elected, six, seven weeks ago by the people of your state to represent them, you have to hold yourself out as someone worthy of the trust of the public. and the late payments for the jet trips not withstanding, he violated senate ethics rules by not reporting those as significant gifts, and that in and of itself is serious. >> bill: he took the trips in august of 2010, and reimbursed the government in january of 2013, after the daily caller exposed the story. >> what it reminds me of a little bit is what happened with the john edwards story. of course one publication, the national enquirer was covering it, and pretty much every stayed away from it, and poo pooed it, and a significant time later, the national inquirer was right and they had done good reporting. i don't know the background o

not getting done because the bill is not out of committee. when harry reid says, when you talk about the ruling from the appellate court it was based on the imperial presidency with a rule created by harry reid. watery getting in america? 16 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities over the next 75 years. and for the students, $823,000 of debt. how do we pale that off. >> and did you really gets the bush tax cuts? >> yes. >> a lot of people railed against bush and also against obamacare that is how they got the majority in the 2010 election. >> it's the economy. liz: david and gains. david: cheryl casone, good to have you here. thank you so much. melissa: i am melissa francis and here's what is "money" tonight. it could be the next california. how close is the breaking point and can the taxman save it? the power panel breaks it down. plus, he's in what is going on in salt lake city lately? a group of doctors declared a health emergency warning premature birth and miscarriag miscarriages. the group's leader joins us with the diagnosis. and unusual hand drawn top nba recruits th
an interesting point that so far harry reid has not really put senator menendez in the chair of the senate foreign recessi foreign relations committee. that could be because john kerry was cleared as secretary of state or it could be -- as i think you are thinking -- that reid doesn't want to risk it until the dust clears. why isn't menendez head of the foreign relations committee officially? >> first of all, it requires an upgrade in his security clearance sfa us the. one thing they ask is if you have liabilities with foreign interests, exposure to blackmail. these are things that can blow up in the face of the democratic leadership and the senate as a whole. harry reid would be stupid to take that kind of risk. if anything, the timing of the fbi raid may have been encouraged by senator reid and the democratic leadership. they want to get it resolved as quickly as possible so that committee, the senator foreign relations committee can do its job. >> menendez said in his statement that he rode the plane -- his buddy's plane three times. david, is that new information? i thought it was one
you coming after the guns. >> that's a great segue of a problem potentially of harry reid to face in nevada. he took down the sportsman for harry reid website which you can still find, you know, screen grabs of online. it features very prominently an endorsement of wayne lapierre on the top and reads senator reid led efforts to create the world's finest shooting range right here in our state and staunchly opposed to the so-called assault weapons ban, played a critical role in passing a law to protect gun manufacturers from junk lawsuits, et cetera. where does he go in the national conversation? you mentioned some proposals flying around. what does he do about this? >> i think he's been pretty clear in trying to carefully stake out the position. the history here is he's definitely a pro-guns second amendment guy from a pro-gun state in nevada and the views didn't change. what's maybe changed is that his relationship with the national rifle association is a lot worse. he's found himself running against them and even though the votes are totally pro nra if you score him. the nra putt
that the democrats are more inclined to compromise. of course, i have held senator harry reid's fight to the fire on the budget business because unless he puts a budget on the table, there can't begin to be a discussion to compromise. so, you know -- he should call up senator reid and tell him to start compromising. >> the president has said that for a long time, said that he and the democrats are more willing to compromise, but somehow, the compromise doesn't happen. >> as they say, never dull. i heard you got locked out of your house today. >> i'm back in. >> a little-known fact about byron york, he was locked out of his house today. >> we think that hell just froze over. bipartisanship on capitol hill. eight senators -- republicans and democrats -- proposing new and wide-ranging plan for immigration reform. one of the senators, lindsay graham joins us. good evening. are we going to get bipartisan immigration reform. >> there will be no immigration reform unless it's bipartisan. but if you want to talk about the president being a bold leader n. 200 vefn, he folded like a cheap suit when the lab
